Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary.
The Icon depicts the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary as it happened when the Archangel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary and announced to her that she would give birth to the Son of God, Jesus Christ. She, without any hesitation, answered: "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word" and upon her response, the Angel departed.
Today marks the crowning of our salvation and the revelation of the mystery before all ages. For the Son of God becomes the son of the Virgin, and Gabriel proclaims the grace. Wherefore, we also cry out with him, "Hail, O full of grace, the Lord is with you."
To you, Theotokos, invincible Defender, having been delivered from peril, I, your city, dedicate the victory festival as a thank offering. In your irresistible might, keep me safe from all trials, that I may call out to you: "Hail, unwedded bride"
